What is in Your Walleye Reel?
By John Campbell

For tournament anglers, every fish they land is as important as the next. Recreational anglers also demand the best from their equipment. They are fishing for the fun of the sport. If their line breaks and they lose a lure and a fish, then they have to spend time tying on another lure instead of what they would rather be doing, reeling in the big one. If I am jigging I prefer to use a monofilament line that gives me some stretch. The reason for this is that I am directly over the fish when jigging and I want the line to give a little when I make the hookset. This allows me to get the fish to the surface quickly and by adding stretch to the formula the fish can run and yet not get off because there is no slack in the line. Many fish are lost at the boat, so you want a line that gives you some leeway at the boat and will help the fish to stay hooked. The line that I use is not expensive line it is simply Stren. I do want my line to be abrasion resistant especially while jigging in and around rocks. I also want it limp so I can cast it a long way. In trolling situations I will probably stay with the monofilament line, but I may choose an 8lb. test rather than a 6lb. test. I again like the stretching features of monofilament when trolling. The fish stays hooked longer and I donít have to keep a steady retrieve on the fish. If a person was to use super line or fused line they might be able to feel the strike of the fish sooner, but with no stretch many fish are lost at the boat. That is not to say that when you are trolling you should only use monofilament line. I will periodically use lead core line. I like lead core line because it gets my lures down to the bottom and keeps them in the strike zone longer. I have used lead core on open flats and it works very well. It has a high tensile strength and very low stretch. Keep in mind with the low stretch you have to keep your hand on the rod at all times. When the fish is hooked it is a steady retrieve all the way back to the boat. A high-quality fishing line can mean the difference between a productive day of fishing and a frustrating day of attempting to fish. Stren has come to the rescue with their new line, Stren Extra Strength. Itís perfect for fishing heavy cover, for fishing structure or for going after that once-in-a-lifetime record-sized fish. Through the use of advanced research and development,

Stren Extra Strength Line Stren made Extra Strength its strongest line ever. Strength in fishing line is defined by tensile strength (breakload vs. diameter). Stren Extra Strengthís tensile strength exceeds that of other fishing lines. This added strength translates into great knot strength, shock strength, abrasion resistance, durability and castability. In addition, Extra Strength is a low visibility fishing line so it wonít spook the fish. Its crystal clear color virtually disappears in water so fish donít even know itís there. The exceptional strength provides extra insurance against breakage and lets anglers downsize the line to avoid further detection by fish without the worry of line breakage. Extra Strength offers up to 50 percent extra insurance against breakage over what the label states. Extra Strength is so strong that current established standards donít really apply to it

When it comes to picking a fishing line, anglers want strength. When every fish counts, Stren Extra Strength fits the bill. Check out the full line of Stren fishing gear at www.purefishing.com. Or if you want to contact me drop me a line at www.walleye.info. Hope to see you on the open water soon!
